2018/19 Season -  Residential Course,

Harrogate Ladies College, July 7th -13th 2019

Over many years North Yorkshire County Music Service has been running County Ensembles for gifted and talent young musicians.

The North Yorkshire County Ensembles provide students with opportunities to develop their musical experiences, meet like-minded musicians and make new friends from across the county. You will have the opportunity to work with senior members of the Music Service and guest conductors and will rehearse a wide range of musical styles.

Our Ensembles cater for a range of abilities and age groups:
Youth Orchestra  is for players of Grade 5 + standard from Yr7 to first year at University. Concert Orchestra welcomes orchestral players from Year 6 and grade 3+.
County Youth Choir is for students in Year 7 and above and is a full SATB choir. We rehearse each half term and on the residential course.
Entry to the County Brass and Saxophone Ensembles is by audition (approx grade 6+) and they join together for the County Youth Big Band. In the 2018/19 season the brass ensemble will also form the brass section of the symphony orchestra on the residential course.
County Guitar Ensemble: we will be welcoming classical guitarists, Year 7+ and Grade 3+ to join this new ensemble. You need to play classical guitar and be able to read from standard notation. The repertoire will be very varied, including arrangements from the classical repertoire, traditional music from around the world and contemporary classics from jazz and  popular  genres.
